LETTER: New York Health Act would expand coverage for all, Linda Resnick, Daily Freeman

Any New York resident who is concerned about health care security and who believes we all have a right to quality health care should be enthusiastic about the New York Health Act making its way through our state Legislature right now.

The act is based on a single-payer model, much like the highly successful Medicare system, and will allow people to access care when they need it instead of rationing care based on the ability to pay.

The New York Health Act has been endorsed by the state Academy of Family Physicians, the state Academy of Pediatrics, the state AFL-CIO, the state Nurses Association, New York State United Teachers and the League of Women Voters, to name just a few.
